Nashville has reportedly won its bid for a Major League Soccer team, ESPN reports. An official announcement is expected Wednesday, with the second expansion spot likely going to either Cincinnati or Sacramento later this month.

Nashville was considered a long shot for expansion back when the candidates were announced earlier this year, but with the promise of a $275 million stadium, ESPN predicts a team will likely be on the field by the 2020 season.
